Environmental awareness took center stage at Harley-Davidson Doha as the dealership on Salwa Road hosted the Enviro Art Challenge final on Saturday, December 13th 2014.
On the day, the Enviro Art Challenge curated a fantastic exhibition of art at the Harley-Davidson dealership. Amazing pieces of art were crafted entirely out of recycled materials, raising awareness of resource use and conservation.
The Enviro Art Challenge was supported by Qatar’s Ministry of Environment, which sent over a panel of officials to adjudicate the event. Mr. Fahad Alahbabi, Mr. Salah Al Harbi and Mr. Musen Al Kayarin from the Ministry spent a couple of hours interviewing artists to understand the idea behind their work, before shortlisting the three winning pieces.
Artist Azzam Louksah came in first place, with Jackie Bowles-Kay hot on his heels and Patric Rozario coming in third. The winners were feted with trophies, and gift vouchers worth QR 6,000 in total.
“We are pleased to have been a part of the Enviro Art Challenge. It was a pleasure seeing such a demonstration of creativity, craftsmanship and hard work – values that are also intrinsic to the Harley-Davidson brand. We are delighted with the support from the Ministry of Education, the Harley Owner’s Group, Al Fanar and other organizations who jumped on board to spread awareness about recycling and resource use,” said Robert Andrew Kelly, Dealer Principal, Harley-Davidson Doha.
The Enviro Art challenge was open to everyone - riders, friends and artists interested in spreading the important message of recycling.
